Inter remain interested in Hellas Verona goalkeeper Marco Silvestri, according to a report in the Italian media today.

As per L’Arena’s print edition (via FcInterNews.it), the Nerazzurri have identified Silvestri as a good alternative to Juan Musso in their bid to find a successor for Samir Handanovic.

Silvestri would cost less than Musso at Udinese and would be happy to join Inter without the guarantee of being their first-choice goalkeeper.

The Argentine, on the other hand, would cost a lot more and is expected to arrive only if he can take over from Handanovic straightaway.

Inter’s main rival for Silvestri, who impressed during Hellas Verona’s 1-0 defeat at San Siro two weeks ago, is Roma, according to Rome-based newspaper Il Tempo.

The Giallorossi have reportedly sped up their talks to bring the 30-year-old to the capital, following the appointment of Jose Mourinho as their next head coach.

Silvestri has made 34 appearances for Hellas Verona this season, keeping seven clean sheets for Ivan Juric’s side.
